GT2 high quality belts
Where in Europe do I find highend GT2 belts online?
What do I need to look for in a belt?
Please move this post if its in the wrong category.

@RogerL FYI the E3D listing are actually 2GT Gates powergrip belts. I think its a slightly updated version of GT2 as they look very similar but not sure. I got a complete set of the belts, pulleys and idlers (toothed and smooth) from E3D and they definitely run better than my old nondescript ebay specials
See this page regarding E3D 2GT belts: https://e3d-online.com/blog/2018/11/29/gates-belts-pulleys-and-idlers/
They are made by Gates Unitta, not Gates USA (who make GT2 and GT3 belts). The profiles are subtly different, and from what I understand, it's best not to mix them. You should be fine with either, though.
I think Misumi sell Gates USA GT2 belts and pulleys in Europe, though there may be other suppliers too.
Ok I will go for E3D for belts and pullies.. Same source for them make sense.
